The Office of Institutional Advancement and Alumni Relations in conjunction
with the Student Alumni Association will host “Paws and Give Thanks” Feb. 27 as
part of the second annual Student Engagement and Philanthropy Day.
The purpose of the day is to create awareness for Pitt-Bradford students
about the generosity of our benefactors. Together, staff and student
volunteers will be located in Hanley Library
from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and in the KOA Dining Hall from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
and from 4:30 to 6 p.m. to distribute refreshments to the campus community and
encourage students to sign thank you cards for alumni donors and friends. The
postcards will be mailed to donors at a later date. As a special touch, select
campus community donors will receive hand-delivered thank you notes from
students on that day. Online, the campus community can show their gratitude
using social media with the hashtag #UPBTHANKS.
plays a vital role in higher education; so many of our students recognize how
it impacts their daily lives,” said Kathleen Neeson, assistant director of
annual giving programs. “This is their chance to say thank you in their own
words, in their own way, and they are also educating their classmates about
these important contributions. Peer-to-peer engagement is beyond measure
for spreading the word about the importance of philanthropy.”
